Why was OneTrust named a Leader? According to the report, “OneTrust’s platform leverages a single code base and common UI to support all standard GRC use cases, plus third-party risk, ethics, ESG, data governance, and privacy, placing it among the most comprehensive platforms in this evaluation.”

The report also cites that, “OneTrust debuted its GRC platform with a mission to help customers, employees, and partners leverage trust to solve complex, cross-functional business problems. An ambitious growth strategy is supported by aggressive hiring, rapid product development, and a flurry of M&A activity, including recent acquisitions of Integris, DocuVision, and Convercent.”

This report comes on the heels of OneTrust’s recent acquisition of Tugboat Logic, a security assurance and certification automation platform. The Tugboat Logic platform uses a unique combination of AI and automated frameworks to help even the smallest teams realize the business value of security certifications like ISO 27001, SOC 2, CMMC, HIPAA, and PCI DSS. These certifications help companies compete with legacy players in their market, win customers, and build trust.

“We believe that bringing the Tugboat Logic crew into the leading OneTrust platform is one of the many exciting GRC capabilities OneTrust brings our customers,” said Todd Fitzgibbon, OneTrust’s U.S. Head of GRC.

OneTrust began our GRC journey when customers asked us to build a platform that goes beyond legacy GRC and prioritizes automation, user experience, and trust first. This analyst recognition helps show our customers that they’ve invested in a platform that’s built to last, while also offering a foundation of trust as a competitive advantage and business differentiator.

Over the course of the last year, OneTrust’s GRC platform has earned analyst designations by continuing to deliver results for customers, including:

Thank you to our customers, partners and employees for helping us accomplish this incredible achievement! We look forward to continuing to innovate scalable, easy-to-use solutions to tackle complex GRC challenges.
